The whirlwind of emotions that swept the O2 Arena for Roger Federer's last three-day event did not fade with the almost unthinkable comeback victory of Team World, which on day three thanks to Jack Sock, doubles star, Felix Auger Aliassime and Frances Tiafoe gave the first pearl in the competition to the team led by John McEnroe.
"I didn't expect to speak at the end of the competition, I don't have a speech, so be good" he said with a smile, turning his gaze to his team and obviously also to the winners, as an extraordinary sportsman before being a competitor.
"I can't help but congratulate all Team World for what they have done these days. An incredible comeback, you deserve it. And to my team, thank you for everything. The time spent with you here has been fantastic. I hope I was not the cause of the defeat but I think the thanks are not enough.
Bjorn Borg you are the king and you know it."

A historic comeback of Team World which for the first time in its history has managed to triumph in the competition. Moreover, with an incredible comeback, marked not only by the initial success of the double of Sock and Aliassime, but above all by the victory of the Canadian against a Djokovic affected in a rather evident way by a problem in his forearm.
